QUIET NIGHTS…New Album Launch
With his new album, Bradford offers his audience a luxurious indulgence. Familiar standards from writers as diverse as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hoagy Carmichael, Michel LeGrand, and The Cure are presented with freshness and originality, and also with a deep respect for their origins, born of Bradford’s love for this timeless genre. In collaboration with long-time Musical Director, William Underwood, one of Chicago’s most creative arrangers, Bradford delivers something that is at once comforting and challenging. Along with William on piano, drummer David Victor and bassist Malcolm Ruhl round out the trio.
Highlights include the violin of Alison Tatum and cello of Tobin Schindler making That Old Black Magic soar. World-renowned jazz guitarist Don Stiernberg brings his inimitable stylings to Angel Eyes, and Anne DeLangis joins Bradford as guest vocalist on My Foolish Heart and (I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons – two glorious voices merging two gorgeous songs. This is music whose richness is subtle but clear, music that can transcend a wide-range of tastes, music that invites listeners to relax and enjoy a "Quiet Night."
THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK … Celebrating America’s Singers and Songwriters
Bradford will continue to concert by taking you on a nostalgic musical journey through the world’s favorite American music. It is a classic performance featuring composers such as Gershwin, Porter and Rogers and songs sung by vocal legends like Sinatra, Cole, Clooney and Martin. Bradford’s delivery of these gems is clean and refreshing, giving a show that is packed with something for everyone. Be certain to join Bradford as he explores the music, the memories and the magic that makes us love “The Great American Songbook.”
